, in afghanistan. and ms. freeman said, where is america's outrage? where is america's concern that we're still at war? i agree with ms. freeman. where's the outrage here in congress? does this make any sense that we continue to borrow money from foreign governments to prop up a corrupt leader and half the money going to the leader of afghanistan ends up in the hands of the taliban to buy weapons to kill americans? our nation is broke. china owns us and we are sending our young men and our money to afghanistan and we're going to cut programs right here in america for the american people. . the american people need to put the pressure on congress to bring our troops home now and not wait until december of 2014. mr. speaker, i assure you if we start bringing them home in december of 2014, it will become 2015 and it will become 2016 and how many more families have to cry about their loved ones being killed in a war that has no end to it? mr. speaker, today i would like to submit for the record, i will ask unanimous consent the names of 28 american service members who have been killed in the last f

for the middle class, now. >> if congress does nothing, every family in america will see their taxes automatically go up at the beginning of next year. >> but republicans aren't budging, accusing the president of avoiding tough choices on spending and wasting time in the effort to avoid the fiscal cliff. >> it's not a serious proposal. and so right now, we're almost nowhere. >> will there be a deal by the end of the year? and what are the consequences for the economy if there isn't one? we'll ask the president's lead budget negotiator, treasury secretary tim geithner. >>> then the view from capitol hill. are democrats as divided over cutting medicare as republicans are over tax increases? with us, two voices calling for compromise. republican senator bob corker of tennessee and democratic senator claire mccaskill of missouri. >>> finally, our special economic roundtable. as both sides battle over the nation's fiscal health, what can we expect from the economy in a second obama term? what is the vision for an economic rebound? >>> from nbc news in washington, the world's longest-runni
growing up in hawaii that america every america has a place for everyone. may god bless daniel inouye, and may god grant us more souls like his. ♪ ♪ somewhere over the rainbow blue birds fly ♪ >> good day. i'm andrea mitchell live in washington where we are expecting to see the first major announcement for president obama's second term. his cabinet choices. this hour the official selection of john kerry as the futures face of the state department. former president bill clinton departing that memorial service. the funeral for senator inouye moments ago with president obama taking time to speak with senator kerry after the service. joining me now for our daily fix chris alissa, msnbc managing editor of post politics.com jeffrey goldberg, national correspondent for the atlantic washington bureau chief susan page, and the "new york times" white house correspondent mark lamb berg. let's talk about the pick of john kerry. we knew it was coming. the timing is interesting. they wanted to do this before christmas, but then we thought it was going to be after christmas, even from the kerr
, you know, there are not a lot of people killed in schools in america. every time someone is killed in a school in america it is a horrific tragedy, but in terms of what are our social problems, schools themselves as sites of violence are not the thing that we, is not really the problem in terms of what the data is saying. and i felt like it, in focusing on the schools, that was maybe missing the problem. tom? >> i think it is important to realize that self-defense does not begin at the moment of conflict. there's self-defense that the society enables through regulations, through laws that have passed, through norms it tries to establish. and one of the big things that is missing from this debate, we can go back and forth and have a conversation about whether armed security would stop anything from happening, didn't help in columbine, but the bigger question is, we as a society, what does this say when you want to put more guns in your place of education, in your place where you send your 5, 6, 7-year-old children? is that the message, the sort of society that we want to be? or do w
, the t stands for treason, because they have done all they possibly can to ruin america, to overthrow our government. host: can you take us through the next 48 hours on this debate on the fiscal cliff? what needs to happen? caller: ok. i say, the president should be willing to come up to $300,000, as far as tax increases. we need revenue. $400,000, some people make that. we need revenue. the only way to get it is to get it from people who actually have the money. there is no shame in helping our government. this is our government. the republicans need to understand that social security and medicare -- listen, those are so important. people are talking about i do not want children paying the bill. they will need social security as well. i want republicans to realize that they were elected to do the will of the people. not just the three% or whatever. they all need to understand that we are all affected by their thinking -- the president won the election, right? host: thank you for the call. i want to take you through some of the effects, if we do go off the fiscal cliff, if congress takes
election again, that's because they were on the wrong side of main street america, on some cultural change happening in the country. they were on the wrong side of issues like the death penalty, on issues like the use of force in foreign affairs, and it wasn't until they'd gotten whacked, george mcgovern lost overwhelmingly, mike ducacas was beaten pretty soundly. after all those things happened, the democratic party through bill clinton and others like him trying to change it, made the party more acceptable to the american people. republicans have not gotten there yet. it was a party as we saw in the election, a declining -- white share of the vote is the declining share of the electorate. their share is going up, but not enough to compensate. >> right. >> right now the sort of primal scream you hear for spending cuts isn't consummate with the american people. president obama just ran on a program of resisting some of the fundamental ways in which the republicans wanted to change medicare and raise taxes on people over $250,000. he won the election and people from the very red districts e
that have become iconic in america's bizarre and shameful epidemic of gun violence. >> reporter: public outrage over the massacre has also emboldened members of congress to challenge the power of the gun lobby. >> the political power is much like the wizard of oz. they're bullies. and what's most important is, they really don't represent their membership. the members are overwhelmingly in favor of responsible use of guns and responsible rules. >> reporter: feelings are running very high after this tragedy. of course, there's been a lot of talk of a turning point. the president today will announce that he's putting vice president biden in charge of a process to look at possible new legislation. but, look, change doesn't happen quickly in washington. there have been about a dozen attempts to bring back the assault weapons ban. they've all failed in congressional committee. and the national rifle association spent $17 million this year to influence legislation and public opinion. it'll be looking out for its interests long after the outrage subsides. charlie, norah? >> bill plante, thanks.
right. here we go, the farm bill covers billions of dollars in farm programs. america needs a stable farm economy, which we currently kind of have. congress always passes a farm bill or renews one that is in effect. they do it, because if they don't do it, the farm legislation lapses and we revert to farm laws between 1938 and '39. the house has not even voted on its version. congress doing nothing about even the stuff everyone is paying attention to, not to mention being famously not in session, it seems highly unlikely the house is going to get it done in time. so what? here's what, in one example. if there is no new farm bill six days from now, the government will have to abide by the provisions of a 19 49d law regarding milk. that would require them to buy milk from dairy farmers at hugely inflated prices. if that law takes effect again in 2013, the government will be forced to pay double what it currently pays for milk. for a short time it will be awesome for dairy farmers, they can sell as much milk as they can to make a ton of money. even dairy farmers know that the windfall w
who have put their lives at risk for america. >> how important is it for hillary clinton to actually testify before these committees? she's out sick, we're told. is her absence could affect getting this thing right? >> well, i think the secretary of state should testify. this is a catastrophic event where a united states ambassador was killed. clearly there were systemic failures. they identified senior leadership failures. it has to be of major consequence to the people who made those bad decisions, and in the transformation process of the state department, and the only one that could reinforce that message, talk about what happened, talk about the decision making, i think, is the secretary of state, so i wish her well. i hope she recovers soon and has a good and quick recovery for whatever is ailing here, and that i do believe she should come up and testify. again, because the magnitude of this is huge and significant because we have some 270 other posts out around the world where these people are have signed up to do america's work in the depp low mattic mission, and they deserve
-to-face behind closed doors of the white house again. with 18 days remaining before america goes over the fiscal cliff, there is still no sign of a deal. both sides calling yesterday's talks frank and insisting the lines of communication remain open. >>> a man fatally shot himself inside a clerk's office at the federal courthouse in birmingham, alabama. the u.s. marshal service says he worked in the building and slipped a gun past security because he used an employee entrance, not a public one. visitors have to pass through metal detectors. police say no one in the courthouse was threatened. >>> so the university of miami has apologized for a text mess an gaffe sent over to emergency notification network. it warned of a black man on campus and what he was wearing. that text raised eyebrows as there are many black men on campus. the complete text should have said that was the description of a man wanted for stealing a student's laptop. it was a game of hot potato thursday night. the eagles had a punt blocked by their own teammate. they lost at home to the bengals. they drop to 4-10. cincinnati ke
in the near future and the veterans for america join us now, hi, pete. >> thanks for having he me. >> read the pre-interview with you. and you're not a fan of either of these choices. what worries you? >> well, a great deal does, and a lot of it comes to judgment and you played the clip about john kerry and iraq and i still found myself in iraq, imagine that? and he's, both of them have records, set aside benghazi, set aside some of the recent events with susan rice and judgments on management of conflicts called into question and she was in the national security council back in 1993 when rwanda kicked off and she made a controversial comment about, well, if we call it a genocide and don't act. what will be the implications on the november mid term election? and if you hook at-- and then later on, reflexively supported the regime in ruwan da when there were more war crimes committed and since vowed to heal that, but, you know, you've seen her political statements recently that showed there's a political side of susan rice and willingness for talking points that we can't afford as secretary
unilateral rights for people with disabilities. it's actually based on america's ada act which bob dole helped pass more than 20 years ago. and you know, andrea, watching this american hero on the floor, a guy who is disabled, left part of himself, as he has said and others have said, on the battlefields of western europe, coming in and making a plea. i'm really surprised that this was killed by fringe concerns, fringe, fringe concerns. >> and it was, in fact, his fellow senators, several of the people who served with bob dole, who were the key votes here. and john kerry was leading it on the floor with john mccain. it was one of those bipartisan coalitions of veterans, wounded veterans, mccain and others, and the wounded warriors. the chamber of commerce. this is basically to take the american standard that bush 41 passed. it was his bill. >> george bush. >> george bush 41's bill spread it to the rest of the world. his son, george w., approved this treaty. it was sent up by president obama in '09, the senate foreign relations committee passed it easily, and then these republicans aband

. it is incredibly hard. we need to talk about them during this season and all seasons in america. >> all right. that's a fitting point to end on. i want to thank you, our panel. michael, ira, sam, and liz. i will see you back here next wednesday at moon eastern, 9:00 a.m. pacific, and i will be joibd by new york making sfwleen's jonathan, the new york teams nicolas, and joye reid. until then can you find us at facebook.com/now with alex. happy holidays to everyone. andrea mitchell reports is next. good afternoon, andrea. >> good afternoon. happy holidays to you, ari. have a great time. coming up next, president obama expecting to announce john kerry this hour as his choice for secretary of state. we'll bring that to you live. joining me mark lambberg, jeffrey gold beg, chris page, chris alissa, and congressman, and councilman hoyer all with us. the next steps for the fiscal cliff. now that the house has bailed on its speaker. andrea mitchell reports is next. more washington gridlock. no, it's worse -- look, our taxes are about to go up. not the taxes on our dividends though, right? that's a big part
to the virgin mary, especially in latin america. i think the vatican likes that inference. the 12/12/12 thing, an attempt to renew the apocalypse, i don't think so. their normal model is talk to me on tuesday and i'll get back to you in 300 years. so by that standard, this is actually rapid response. they've been wanting to do this for a while. today was just the day they were ready to launch. >> i wonder if we'll get any insight on his personality. like if he'll go, have a great happy easter, hash tag. >> if you think he's going to be walking around the palace with an ipad, saying, hey, had a great birthday bash last night, wish you were here, that's not the kind of thing i think you'll be getting from benedict xvith. i think the vatican's calculation is that quite often people's impressions of the pope is not based on anything he's said but on what other people have said about him. and this is their effort to sort of help him break through that filter and speak directly to people around the world. >> it also shows you the power of twitter and helping to form a message and getting the word o
on foreign relations, author of "foreign policy begins at home: the case for putting america's house in order." and in washington, vice president and executive editor of msnbc.com and msnbc political analyst, richard wolffe. a minor round of applause for richard wolffe. >> one hand clapping. >> first of all, can anybody here come up with a synonym -- i don't care what it is -- so we don't have to employ the phrase "fiscal cliff" at all during the day? any ideas? anybody got any -- >> how about deadline? >> how about do your job. how about just do your job time. it is ridiculous. a little news, then we'll chatter about this. as if tax hikes and spending cuts weren't enough, there's a new reminder that the nation's debt ceiling is also hanging over the budget talks in washington. in a letter to congress yesterday, treasury secretary timothy geithner warned the government would hit its legal borrow i borrowing limit i limit by monday. geithner says the treasury will be forced to take, quote, extraordinary measures to keep paying the bills. he also referenced the impending fiscal cliff, which thr
. he is not engaged in solving america's problems. >> see, they can agree. as the clock ticks down on 2012, americans can take solis in the fact that no matter how bad their habits, no matter how debilitating their faults, they will never be as dysfunctional as the people we've chosen to lead us. so joining us now to explain exactly where we stand is the sage of capitol hill himself, nbc's luke russert. oh, luke, coming in on the -- what should be your day off. please do explain to us this mess that's happening on capitol hill. where are we right now? >> it's quite a mess. obviously we've heard all those words, joy. the negotiations are fluid. it's $450,000 up from $250,000. also included in that is the extension of unemployment benefits. they're trying to figure out right now what is the hold-up to this possible deal is how -- whether or not they would pay for this see quester with some revenue or some other way. aside from how the deal is being shaped up right now, you're starting to hear some real anger on the left. tom hashingen, the senator from iowa, went to the senate floor
you realistically that's how people are living their lives in the united states of america in the 21st century. so we need to be real about how people are living their lives. >> you know what, one thing i do want to talk about, i'll begin with you tony on this. i'm sure you saw that photo making the rounds this week of house committee chairmen? what is that all about. they're all white males. speaker boehner now said he was indeed appointing a female chair congresswoman, candice miller. this committee is in charge of things like the house cafeteria, expense accounts, benefits packages. sounds like a token appointment to a somewhat low-level position. >> look. speaking as a white male republican, wasn't really happy to see that. i want to see more women and more representative of the country in our leadership and on the hill. look, this is a problem for my party. we need to think about how inclusive we are and making sure that we have opportunities. we have wonderful -- the women and minority representatives of the republican party in congress are really exceptional people. we need to m
about every worker in america and deep spending cuts, particularly to our military. i'm hair harris faulkner. this is a special two-hour edition of the fox report. pressure is mounting as talks appeared to be making progress at one point then late today, word they hit a setback this afternoon over social security spending. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell says he never received a response to a republican offer last night and is reaching out to vice president joe biden to kickstart negotiations with the white house at this point. the senator saying fail to go solved the crisis is simply not an option. >> the consequences of this are too high for american people to be engaged in a political messaging campaign. there's no single issue that remains an impossible sticking point. the sticking point appears to be a willingness and interest or frankly the courage to close the deal. i want everyone to know i'm willing to get this done. but i need a dance partner. >> a dance partner. meanwhile democrats being led by senate majority leader harry reid who says he's cautiously optimistic a
a fringe belief in america. >> has there been any shift in attitudes that is, do more americans believe in a biblical explanation rather than just global warming, something that we can fix? do they think it a biblical explanation? >> we asked this question separately because they told us whether it was a result of climate change and a result of the end times and we did see that six in ten americans say that it's a result of climate change. so we have most americans on that side. again, the significant minority here and the real question is how much does it matter in term of what government action wants to do and it turns out that it matters. the perception of the facts matters the most. so those who don't believe that storms are getting more severe, just the fact of that are twice as likely to say that the government should do more to address climate change but among those who say that it's a sign of the end times, they are evenly divided on whether or not the government should do something to address this compared to more than two-thirds of those who say it's not a sign of the end time
